I can't believe that the City of Kent is letting the Corps of Engineers "off the hook" with this one. If nothing else, they could fill the two holes with dirt, but to just sit back and do nothing is not acceptable!

They aren't, they are conducting a survey. There are many projects that need to be addressed that are just as important. It is not their fault you choose to live in a flood plain.
